Quick and Easy Side Table Update

Hello dear readers!  Life has been going relatively well now that our new addition is here.  Sleep is a little hard to come by, but of course, that is to be expected.  I haven't had a lot of time for new projects, but I do still have some projects from a couple of months ago to share with you.  I worked on this side table at the same time as my dresser makeover, so it was super quick and easy.

This old side table has been with me since my first apartment.  I painted it black when I got it so the paint was old, dingy and chipped.  It came with a glass top, so I had some green fabric underneath to give some color to the table.  When I changed the color scheme in the living room, I left the fabric (mainly because I was lazy) and it definitely was not working.

So I cleared off the table and threw away the fabric and the glass.  I sanded and primed the table first.

Then I gave it two coats of Thundercloud metallic paint from the Martha Stewart line.  It was a fast paint job and I really like the updated look of the table.  It goes with the new living room lamp much better now!
